Item description for A Thief In The Night by Russell Doughten...
Overview One of the most unique and widely seen motion pictures of all time. A THEIF IN THE NIGHT tells the story of Patty, a young woman caught up in living for the present with little concern for the future. She meets and marries a young man and her life seems great, until one morning she awakens to find her husband gone and the radio reporting that millions of people have mysteriously disappeared.
As dramatic, earth shaking events begin to unfold around her, Patty realizes she is living in the end times spoken of in biblical prophecy. Adventure and suspense build to a thought-provoking climax in this powerfully gripping film.
Community Description The most popular "End Times" prophecy movie ever. Patty disregards the prophetic Biblical warnings of the coming tribulation. Now the truth begins to unfold. Can she escape the dramatic, haunting circumstances? Is there a way out? The climax is riveting!

And there will be no place to hide Nov 16, 2007
Man this is one of the most scariest endtime movies ever also my brother belives this is the scariest movie ever. My guess is because he saw it as a little kid.
A thief in the night woke me up! Nov 8, 2007
I watched this set of movies at school years ago. It was my first encounter with the idea that I needed to be saved and becoming a Christian is more than just being dragged through Sunday school. They woke me up, these films scared me, they intrigued me. They got me asking questions in class, "how do you not go to hell?", "how are you saved?" etc. These questions led to answers and I believed that Jesus is the Son of God. Years later - I just ordered "Thief in the night" and I'm very excited to watch it again. If you are a teacher, I highly recommend that you be ready to answer questions kids could have after watching this or the other movies. Same goes with youth group leaders. If they are inquisitive be ready to tell them how to become saved. Anyone who confesses that Jesus Christ is Lord and believes that God raised Him from the dead will be saved.
The Myth of Armageddon and the End Times Oct 17, 2007
What would we do without technology, even 70s-level special effects, to dramatize our most terrifying fantasies? All John of Patmos had was words, but we have those thundering sound and light extravaganzas called movies to make the "end-times" look horrific--and then we have reviewers on this site to say that whatever you saw in the movies isn't nearly as bad as the reality will be. I'm wondering whether all those people who have seen the film realize it was made some thirty years ago, and we're all still around to watch it. We're also all still around to read some history of end-times thinking and find out that such predictions have reared their loathsome heads in Europe and America recurrently over the last 2000 years, since Jesus himself is reported to have advised his listeners that some of them would live to see God's cosmic judgment on His enemies.
And future generations will be around to wonder how anyone could take these fictions seriously. John of Patmos wanted to scare his readers/listeners into compliance with his fanatical righteousness and reassure them that the enemies of the 1st century followers of Jesus would get their just desserts, even though, at the time, it certainly wasn't apparent how that would happen. John's message: have faith--in wrath and doom.
Watch this film and be thankful we're at least enlightened enough that we can turn our backs on its incredible ideology. How do believers validate their claims that this part of the Bible is true? They simply circle you back to the very book you're trying to verify, as though any other possible authority (like critical history, or better yet, common sense) is irrelevant. Final rating: dumb but moderately enteraining, so long as you don't have the volume up too high. Or, better yet, relevant to the study of aberrant cultural phenomena.
A Terrifyingly Effective Christian Movie Jan 11, 2007
This is one review that I will try to tell as little as possible, so you can enjoy this movie without preconceived notions. The title comes from the reference in 1 Thessalonians 5, that the Day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night.
This movie (and the subsequent movies) are taken from a pre-millennial, pre-tribualtional theology. Pre-millennial means Christ will return following a seven year tribulation period to set up His kingdom. Pre-tribulational means that Christians will be taken from the earth to be with Christ prior to that seven year tribulation.
This is all I'll tell you about the movie. If you have not seen it, please do. If you are not a Christian, definitely see this movie, and definitely find a Christian to answer any questions you have concerning this movie.
Watch it. The Rapture is coming soon. Oct 17, 2005
Yes, read your KJV Holy Bible*King James Version*, and watch films on the Rapture and left behind series so you can wake up to reality that the Lord is coming back soon. It will be a scary time but hope you get picked up by the Lord. So don't reject Him, but accept Him. Movie is recommended. Yes, help poor people, and pray for them, as well as pray for yourself, obey the Ten Commandments and follow Christ.
